Score 10.0/10
Good points:
lightweight & thin
amazing screen colours are vibrant
cant believe its a refurbished laptop no marks or dents to make me suspect it is nothing except brand spanking new.
Bad points:
not really a negative but in my case total pc/laptop novice the new windows confuses me lol, but my kids can navigate no problem.
Again not a negative but using a proper mouse is helping me personally but again this is down to choice of the user.
Even though there was no box except the delivery one the contents were securely held, but if buying as a gift be aware the box side of it, if it were me i would buy a laptop bag and present it in that, two gifts in one and sorts the no box drama :)

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
First laptop in 6 years and it hasn't disappointed. Not too heavy but feels reassuringly solid.
Bad points:
Black surface REALLY shows fingerprints and smudges- also had to tinker with volume limits as factory settings are too quiet for watching film/tv (but you can override it, Google is your friend)

Manufacturer's Description

The Compaq CQ58-331SA 15.6" Laptop is a slick, sleek and powerful portable computing solution, finished in an attractive black liquorice colour.

Experience the new Windows OS

This innovative Windows 8 OS combines all the important Windows features reliably and securely.

Operating around a combination of internet apps and the familiar desktop, it dynamically utilises cloud technology for true mobility and flexibility. The customisable Start screen lets you arrange all your important information and features as required.

When connected to the internet, your apps and tiles can update with live information, keeping you in the loop with everything that is important to you at a glance.

Brawny processing means graphic and sonic goodness

The CQ58-331-SA houses an AMD Dual-Core E1-1200 APU processor with AMD Radeon HD 7310 Graphics, a winning combination that delivers fast, fluid usability and application running teamed with superbly crisp and colourful visuals.

With up to 1.92 GB dedicated to running graphics on the 1366 × 768p BrightView LED display, all your web pages, documents, photos and applications will be rendered in superb clarity. Since the screen is backlit, it’s easier on the eyes and usable in a variety of environments.

Video and music content is further enhanced by the built-in Altec Lansing speakers, which provide balanced, punchy and satisfying sound every time.

4 GB of RAM enables this notebook to swiftly open and run multiple applications, giving you greater multitasking potential on the go. Chat and keep social feeds up to date whilst getting work done and listening to music.

A 500 GB hard drive provides ample storage for your favourite and most important photos, videos, music and documents; and the computer’s RAM is upgradeable to 8 GB for even more processing power.

Essential ports included

With the Compaq CQ-58331S-A Laptop, you get a fantastic range of connectivity options to expand your experience. Connect the computer to an external monitor via HDMI for pristine video and sound, or use the VGA and display ports for the same purpose.

Insert a memory stick, graphics tablet or other compatible device into one of the three USB 2.0 ports, or insert a digital media card from your camera right into the Compaq CQ58 Laptop to upload photos using the multi-format digital media card reader.

The notebook also includes a SuperMulti DVD±R/RW drive with double layer support, so you have full multimedia capability, whether you’re uploading photos and work documents or wanting to watch a DVD
